Do Not Multitask
I know you are a superman/woman and you have enough potential to do many different tasks at the same time but you need to stop. Stop juggling things if you want to do your work efficiently. Do one thing at once, then go to the other work. If you try to do 2 things at the same time you won’t be able to do anything right.

Switch off the music

It takes you to dreamland. Which leaves you distracted. You can always find time for music. Just complete your current work first.
Track your distractions
Make note of the missing moments. Track how many times you have been distracted while completing one task. Try to reduce those numbers daily.
You can take it as a challenge and try to compete with yourself. It sounds like a game.
Concentrate, Concentrate, Concentrate
Remember to concentrate on one task at a time. You can prioritize your works. First complete your top most priorities, then move on to the next. This way you will manage your time efficiently and you will have enough time for yourself later.
Take a break
You only get distracted either when you have overworked or something is troubling you. Whatever the case is. Go easy on yourself. Take a moment for yourself after every hour or two. You can use this moment to relax your mind with a cup of tea or some music. Remember to go back to your work again.
If you are someone who procrastinate all the time. Then do one thing. Just push yourself to start. At least you can do is start and once you start your work you will definitely complete the work.
